DESCRIPTION: EX SSL-VPN: Aventail VPN client cannot be "pinned" in Windows 7
The concept of “pinning” and the other is that the “quick launch” portion of the task bar is no longer exists in Windows 7.
The concept of creating a short cut still exists, so users can create a shortcut to an application or most Windows objects on the “Desktop” and previous Windows operating systems, you could add a short cut to an application on the quick launch bar.
In Windows 7, the only way to get the “quick launch” equivalent is to “pin” the object (e.g. the Aventail VPN launcher) to the taskbar. However not all objects can be “pinned”. In the case of third party applications such as Aventail, it’s up to the vendor (not Microsoft) to enable the support for “pinning” in Windows 7.
This issue will be fixed in vesion-10.6.0
How to Test:

Right click on the Aventail connect Shortcut icon created on the Desktop
There is no option of "Pin" available As shown above,
However on a Third party vpn client e.g Nortel VPN Client we could see the option of PIN as below
